A facial scrub is used to exfoliate the skin and unplug pores. It will also leave the skin looking fresh and new as the dead layer of skin cells is sloughed off. You only need about 1 teaspoon of material to make your scrub and you can use foods you already have in the kitchen as your base. Good bases that you may already have are oatmeal, dried peas, almonds and hazelnuts. Whichever base you use must be ground up in a blender or by pestle and mortar so that it forms small, gritty lumps like coarse sand. The starches and enzymes in the cereals, peas or nuts will be triggered during treatment and will work on cleansing the face.

Oatmeal is commonly used in cosmetic products and when combined with ground almonds, it makes an excellent scrub. Mix one teaspoon of oatmeal, one teaspoon of ground almonds, and one drop of either lavender, clary-sage, or basil essential oil. Roll this combination over the surface of your face with damp fingers then rinse it off with warm water. Basil essential oil is very good for this type of scrub because it lifts dead skin cells and rejuvenates the skin tone.

Basil is an important ingredient in the following revitalizing face scrub which is best to use if you have normal to oily skin: 1 teaspoon ground almonds, 1 teaspoon dry oatmeal, 1 pinch salt, 1/2 teaspoon cider vinegar and 1 drop basil essential oil. Mix the vinegar, salt and basil together then add the almonds and oatmeal. Again, use damp fingers to roll the mixture over your face and then finish by rinsing your face well with warm water.

facial cleanserI have always taken a lot of pleasure in making sure that I am able to take great care of my skin on a regular basis. I make sure that I don’t spend too much time out in the sun and when I do I wear sunscreen to make sure that my skin is not damaged. It is always good to do the things I need to keep the skin on my face looking so beautiful.

To make sure that I am able to keep my skin looking nice all of the time, I use all kinds of different products on it throughout each day. This means that I start with facial cleansers in the morning and end with moisturizing cream at night. All of these different products contribute to the way my skin feels and how healthy it is.

It is wonderful to be able to touch my skin and feel how soft it is. I love being able to have all of the right kinds of natural products that make it so that I am able to get the most from the way that my skin is cared for. I really do feel that my skin care regime is part of why my skin looks so young and is so beautiful all of the time.


Turning to Healthy Skin Care Products for Acne

acne-questions-answered-vI had a really hard time when I was in school for a number of different reasons, but in particular because of my appearance. When I was in middle school and high school, I had to deal with some seriously terrible acne issues. It was really embarrassing and it made my youth very difficult because it really damaged my self-esteem for a long time.

After high school, I started to turn towards a particular set of healthy skin care products that finally started to do the trick. Perhaps it was the combination of my hormones settling down and these products, but regardless of what was the cause, my acne began to clear up quite a bit. I lucked out by not having any acne scars, and my skin looks better than ever now.


Clearing Skin With A Facial Scrub

Men-Skin-CareWhen I was younger, I had a bad case of acne, but my biggest problem was with blackheads. As I’ve grown up, both of those problems have been reduced significantly, but even in my adulthood, I still frequently find myself with many blackheads on my nose. For a while, I wasn’t sure what to do about it and it was something that really bothered me.

Recently, I discovered a facial cleanser that works perfectly when I combine it with other natural skincare  products and it’s been clearing up my blackheads like you wouldn’t believe! Ever since I started using natural soap, it has given me so much more confidence now that my skin stays clear. I’m very happy with the results I’ve seen so far.


Daily Facial Scrubs

A common question that many women ponder is how often to use a facial scrub. After all, scrubs can work wonders on clogged pores, but they can also be harsh on acne prone skin. As a rule of thumb, if you have dry skin, only use a facial scrub once a week.

People with oily skin can use a facial scrub two or three times a week. More than three times a week can have a damaging effect. If your skin is exceedingly dry and your skin is prone to frequent breakouts, avoid facial scrubs altogether. In those instances it is better to use a gentle cleanser twice a day and wipe away excess oil with toner.


All About Routine

Good skin care is all about routine. I learned that lesson the hard way when my skin started breaking out uncontrollably. For a teenager breakouts are okay, even normal, but for a professional woman, breakouts are unacceptable.

I consulted with a dermatologist to find out what was going on. She asked me several questions about my busy life. She found the problem immediately: I wasn’t committing to a skin cleansing routine twice a day. She gave me a stern lecture about taking the time to take care of my skin, especially removing makeup at the end of the day. After two weeks of sticking to a strict regimen, the stubborn breakouts went away.

ART Gentle Foaming Cleanser

Keeping skin clean is imperative for keeping skin healthy. Cleansing twice a day with a gentle foaming cleanser is sufficient. A fan favorite is Young Living’s ART gentle foaming cleansing skin care product.

The cleanser’s formula works particularly well on sensitive skin because it contains no harsh astringents. The lather easily removes makeup and oils, leaving behind soft, hydrated skin. After using the ART cleanser, apply Day activator or Night Reconstructor, depending on the time of day, for maximum results.
